Programs - Training Program in Developmental Hematology
Principal Investigator/Program Director: Alan L. Schwartz, Ph.D., M.D.
Co-Program Director: David B. Wilson, M.D., Ph.D.
Research Fellow Support: 2 Postdocs (M.D.'s)
This program will provide pediatric physicians (M.D.'s or M.D., Ph.D.'s) with postdoctoral research experience with the long-term goal of producing independent investigators capable of making important contributions to biomedical research. Trainees will be second- and third-year fellows recruited from the Hematology-Oncology fellowship program in the Department of Pediatrics at Washington University School of Medicine. Trainees will participate in a formal seminar series that includes a discussion of current research in developmental hematology, along with didactic sessions in statistics, design of research, and the ethical conduct of research. Trainees may perform their postdoctoral research in a wide range of laboratories at Washington University, provided the research is relevant to the field of developmental hematology. This award will support two new trainees per year for a duration of two years.
